The Carl Jung Society

A group to honour Carl Gustav Jung, and his work as a psychiatrist and founder of the school of analytical psychology. He proposed and developed the concepts of the extroverted and introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. The issues that he dealt with arose from his personal experiences. For many years Jung felt as if he had two separate personalities. One introverted and other extroverted. This interplay resulted in his study of integration and wholeness. His work has been influential not only in psychology, but in religion and literature as well.

Active Imagination

Carl Jung created the concept of active imagination as a way to describe bridging the gap between unconsciousness and consciousness. Using imagination, fantasy, dreams and meditation, a client is able bring their unconscious into the present through narrative or action. Active imagination relies on a client’s undirected observation of their imagination or dreams, not an intended image of their desires.

Depth Psychology

Depth psychology is one of the many therapeutic approaches derived from Jungian Psychology. This method relies on discovering the motives behind mental problems as a means to treat them. During depth psychology, a therapist works with a client to reveal the source of their issue, rather than the symptoms associated with it. Once identified, the maladaptive motives can be transformed, resulting in healthier, more positive thoughts and behaviors.


One of the phenomena that exists in depth psychology is that of the “wounded healer.” When a therapist works with a client who has similar emotional wounds, the therapist becomes aware of this dynamic and may inadvertently transfer his wounds back to the client. This process of countertransference can be detrimental to both the therapist and the client because it exposes the therapist to the wounds of his client, thus potentially infecting the therapeutic process.

Archetypal Psychology

Founded in archeology and anthropology, archetypal psychology is one of the strategies that is often used to uncover unconscious motives. Jung studied how historical religions, deities and fables influenced an individual’s sense of self. Archetypal psychology theorizes that a person’s dreams and psyche are intertwined with their beliefs and that this union is what forms their behaviors, thoughts and emotions. The archetype is symbolic of an individual’s collective life experiences and determines what choices, both conscious and unconscious, a person makes. Archetypal psychology focuses on the soul of a person and Jung and his predecessors found similarities in the archetypes of legends and the drive that is human motivation. Today, archetypal psychologists still consider archetypes a prominent force in the development of an individual’s psychological construct.

Collective Unconscious

Jung was the first to use the term “collective unconscious,” as a means for describing an expression of the unconscious that is exhibited by every living being with a nervous system. Rather than only possessing experiences from our personal history or our psyche, the collective unconscious organizes all of the experiences within a species. Jung believed the collective unconscious was inherited and inherent to each being, rather than a result of specific events. The collective unconscious holds mental images that cannot be explained historically or through experience, but exist only as an evolutionary by-product.

If you are interested in Jungian theory, you should check out our film that is in the making, Ensoulment. It touches on Jung's theory of the anima and how it expresses in different realms of Western culture such as the media, body, men, relationships, the workplace and religion. We've got great interviewees: James Hollis, Abigail Disney, Paula Reeves, Mary Hamilton, etc.

Master of Mount Leigh, thanks for the link. I do hope people will go read, but often people are reluctant to wander off site. You may get more viewing/response if you post a discussion post with some of what you've written to give people a good enough 'taste' to get them interested.

I find people respond best to whole posts, and will then go look for more whole posts, but some people prefer to do the post half of the blog/article and then link to read the rest on their site... this works well for some people, and it makes other people feel manipulated and upset.. lol.

Whatever works for you... just a suggestion, no pressure at all. Myself I'm off to take a peek at your site. :)
